Gilmer and Wirt counties have joined Calhoun, Roane and Ritchie in placing the Sunday Hunting option on the ballot. Wirt County Commissioner Lention Offutt says the option will be on the November ballot in Wirt. "We decided to let the people make the decision," he said.

Gilmer's three commissioners voted unanimously to place the Sunday hunting issue on the May ballot. Commission President Reta Kight said it should have been voted upon by a state referendum.

The other two commissioners, Larry Chapman and Dave Hess expressed concerns over the issue, but concluded that the voters should decide.

Dozens of other West Virginia counties have decided on voter option.
